Rick (Surging) Santorum: “I haven’t been talking a lot about gays”

Igor Volsky over at Think Progress reports that during an appearance on Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly Wednesday night, “surging Santorum” said that while he does support annulling every same-sex marriage in the United States through a constitutional amendment same sex marriage, that he hasn’t been stumping on anti-gay issues and has been focusing on economic issues instead:

O’REILLY: To rescind — rescind it after a licenses already given. That’s a big deal.

SANTORUM: The federal government would have to pass a constitutional amendment and if the Constitution says that marriage is between a man and woman, then things that are inconsistent with that would not — would be inconsistent with the Constitution so –

O’REILLY: Would you be doing that if you were elected president? Would you be campaigning for a constitutional amendment in that way?

SANTORUM: I would — well, if you pass a constitutional amendment that says marriage –

O’REILLY: So would you — would that be — would that be in the forefront of your — of your administration?

SANTORUM: As you know, Bill, if you’ve been following me out on the trail, I haven’t been talking a lot about this. Although I strongly believe in it. What I’ve been talking about as I did last night on my acceptance speech where didn’t talk about this issue, I talked about the importance of getting this economy going and talked about my grandfather and coming here for freedom. And this is the fundamental issue in this campaign is whether government is going to be big and obtrusive and telling people how to manage their — their lives or — and are they going to support the basic values of faith and family that allow government to be limited and allow our economy to be strong. Those are the things I talked about and did across Iowa. I’ll be talking about those things here in New Hampshire.

What a fucking liar.  As if creating a Constitutional Amendment defining marriage as a man & a woman, ISN’T the government getting involved in people’s lives?

Rick’s Santorum is so back up its spewing out of his mouth.

  1. The Govt should be restrained by the Constitution as the (Human)Rights of the individual are protected. GSA groups should be allowed as tax payers pay schooling stuff and education stuff like this. The rights of an individual to form a group GSA is THEIRS. Educate the Teachers or whoever is speaking on behalf of GOD as if there is one voice only. Santorumish figures need to WTFU wake the fuck up. He is already dead cosmologically his version of GOD with exclusions and limits is LIMP and biolimited. Dont blame HIM maybe blame the GLUTTONY OF IGNORANCE of MANkind. MANbad MANbarbaric = yes.
